PART A: The astonishing installation of HBC: First steps into modding
In this part we will install HBC, which is used to runn apps from the system menu, using the bannerbomb exploit. Along the way, DVDx will be installed, this allows the lens to recognise burned DVDs (not play backups, just see they are there). In the end we will install Bootmii, which is a very useful app as we will see next.
A1)GET THIS and unrar the contents in the root of your SD card. In the root of the SD card whould be:
A2)Run to your wii, place the card in the SD slot and navigate to the SD card icon, bottom left, writes SD and has the same shape, can't really miss it. Once you did this, a warning screen about scams should appear, press ok, screen will go black. A disclaimer shall appear, press one to continue.
(note: following my guide you will never get an upside down HBC. If you ever find the HBC upside down, run this installer again and install HBC again)
A3)Now three lines should appear: Homebrew channel, which can be isntalled, DVDx, also can be installed, Bootmii, which possibly will give you an error. Install Homebrew Channel, DVDX. On bootmii option, select "prepare SD card". After it finishes, install it as boot2 (if possible) or as an IOS.
Warning: Bootmii at most cases will give you an error, so it cannot be installed as a boot2. For most of you will be isntalled as an ios. That is fine.
A4)After that you are ready, you have isntalled all of the above! now an app can be palced in the apps folder in your SD card and be run by HBC! This has a load of functions: Media players, Emulators, Useful apps and Homebrew games! browse tham all here, but take care with the ones you dont really understand,as they might ruin your wii! most of them are really safe tho.
Those who were able to install bootmi as boot2 SHOULD BACKUP THEIR NAND RIGHT AWAY!!! If bootmii was isntalled as ios, then you dont need this step, although you can make one just in case. Mind that you will need a Gamecube controller tho if bootmii was an ios
